Often regarded as the archetype of the classical lead instrument….
The violin has also always been regarded as THE virtuoso’s musical instrument…
And is therefore also considered by many, the single MOST DIFFICULT instrument to play.
Just think about names such as:
- Flight of the Bumblebee
One was a composer that was famous for his “inhuman” technique…
And the second is one of the most famous piece of classical music due to its extremely high level of technique. And yes, it was originally written for the violin.
But whether you want to become the next Paganini…
Or want to play:
- Country music
- Traditional Irish music
- Folk music
- Gypsy music
The truth is that the violin is not limited to classical music anymore and is a center piece of many other music genres.
And with so much resources available on the internet nowadays, reaching a decent level on the violin is now easier AND quicker than ever.
So for today’s post, I compiled everything you need to know in order to get started on this beautiful instrument.
Then read on.
